Post dated checks are not illegal, they may not be accepted by some companies but it is well established law that a post dated check can be issued.

There are some consideration though if you write a check that you know has no funds. Bad checks, also known as NSF checks, bounced checks, rubber checks, insufficient checks, bogus checks, etc., can be a big problem for an individual or for any size company. There are both civil and criminal penalties for this unlawful act, although it is much more costly and difficult to prove a criminal case. In Pennsylvania, the criminal penalties are as follows: Up to $1,000 fine or up to 2 years in penitentiary, or both.
